Understanding chemical peels

What is a chemical peel?

A chemical peel is a cosmetic treatment that involves applying a chemical solution to the skin, causing it to exfoliate and eventually peel off. This process reveals new, regenerated skin that is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin. You can perform chemical peels on your face, neck, or hands to effectively treat a variety of skin issues such as fine lines, wrinkles, acne, scars, uneven skin tone, and sun damage.

Types of Chemical Peels

  1. Superficial Peels: These peels use mild acids like alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) to exfoliate the outermost layer of skin gently. They are ideal for improving the appearance of mild skin discoloration and rough skin, as well as serving as a refresher for the face, neck, chest, or hands.
  2. Medium Peels: These peels penetrate the middle and outer layers of skin using trichloroacetic acid (TCA) or glycolic acid, making them more effective for treating fine lines, wrinkles, freckles, and age spots. Medium peels can also smooth rough skin and treat some precancerous skin growths, such as actinic keratosis.
  3. Deep Peels: Deep chemical peels use phenol or TCA to deeply penetrate the middle layer of skin, removing damaged skin cells. People use these peels to achieve more dramatic results, like treating deep wrinkles, scars, or precancerous growths. Deep peels offer the most significant improvement but require longer recovery times and more post-treatment care.

How chemical peels work

Chemical peels work by applying a chemical solution that causes controlled damage to the skin layers. This damage stimulates the body’s natural healing process, promoting the regeneration of new skin cells and the production of collagen, a key protein that helps maintain skin elasticity and firmness. The peeling process removes the outer layer of dead skin cells, revealing a fresh, new layer of skin that looks smoother, more youthful, and more even in tone.

Benefits of Chemical Peels

Skin Rejuvenation

Chemical peels stimulate the production of new skin cells and collagen, leading to healthier, more youthful-looking skin. They can effectively reduce the signs of aging by minimizing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin.

Treating Acne and Scars

Chemical peels can significantly reduce acne and diminish the appearance of acne scars. The exfoliation process helps unclog pores, reduce inflammation, and promote the growth of new, healthy skin cells. This can result in a clearer, smoother complexion.

Reduced fine lines and wrinkles

By removing the outer layer of skin, chemical peels can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This is particularly effective for areas around the eyes and mouth, where signs of aging are often most noticeable.

Even skin tone and texture

Chemical peels can address hyperpigmentation, sun damage, and other discolorations, resulting in a more even skin tone and texture. This makes the skin look brighter and more uniform, enhancing its overall appearance.

Improvement of Sun-Damaged Skin

Sun exposure can cause significant damage to the skin, leading to premature aging, dark spots, and uneven skin texture. Chemical peels can help reverse some of this damage by removing the affected skin layers and promoting the growth of healthy new skin.

The Chemical Peel Procedure

Pre-treatment Consultation

Before undergoing a chemical peel at BodyGlo.Co, you’ll have a thorough consultation with a skincare professional. During this consultation, we will discuss your skin concerns, goals, and medical history to determine the most appropriate type of peel for your needs. This personalized approach ensures that you receive the best possible care and achieve optimal results.

Step-by-Step Process

  1. Cleaning: We thoroughly cleanse the skin to remove any dirt, oil, and makeup.
  2. Application: Carefully apply the chosen chemical solution to the skin. You may leave the solution on the skin for a specific amount of time, depending on the type of peel.
  3. Observation: We closely monitor the skin’s reaction to the solution to ensure that we achieve the desired depth of peel without causing excessive irritation or damage.
  4. Neutralization: After the appropriate amount of time, the chemical solution is neutralized or removed.
  5. Soothing: To calm the skin and promote healing, apply a soothing ointment or moisturizer.

Post-Treatment Care

Post-treatment care is crucial for achieving the best results and ensuring proper healing. At BodyGlo.Co, we provide detailed aftercare instructions, which typically include:

  • Avoiding sun exposure and using a high-SPF sunscreen
  • Use gentle, hydrating skincare products.
  • Excessive sweating and strenuous activities should be avoided.
  • Keeping the skin moisturized and hydrated
  • Following any additional, specific instructions provided by your skincare professional

In addition to chemical peels, we offer a range of complementary treatments to enhance your results and address various skin concerns. You can combine these treatments with chemical peels to create a comprehensive skincare regimen.


Microneedling involves using fine needles to create tiny punctures in the skin, stimulating collagen production and promoting the regeneration of new skin cells. This treatment can improve skin texture, reduce the appearance of scars and fine lines, and enhance overall skin tone.


Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure that uses a specialized device to exfoliate the outer layer of skin, removing dead skin cells and revealing fresher, healthier skin underneath. It is effective for treating dull skin, fine lines, age spots, and mild acne scars.


Botox is a popular injectable treatment that temporarily relaxes facial muscles to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. People commonly use it to treat forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines, resulting in a smoother, more youthful appearance.

Body Contouring

Body contouring treatments at BodyGlo.Co. help you achieve a more toned and sculpted physique. These treatments can target stubborn areas of fat and improve the overall shape and definition of your body.

Questions about chemical peels

What should I expect during a chemical peel?

During a chemical peel, you may feel a tingling or burning sensation as the chemical solution works on your skin. The intensity of the sensation varies depending on the type of peel you are experiencing. Superficial peels typically cause mild discomfort, while deeper peels may cause more intense sensations.

How long is the recovery time?

Recovery time varies depending on the peel’s depth. Superficial peels may require no downtime, with only mild redness and flaking that resolve within a few days. Medium peels can cause redness, swelling, and peeling for about a week. Deep peels may require several weeks of recovery, with more pronounced redness and peeling.

Are chemical peels safe for all skin types?

Chemical peels are generally safe for all skin types, but it’s essential to have a consultation with a skincare professional to determine the best type of peel for your skin. Certain skin conditions or sensitivities may require specific precautions or alternative treatments.

How often should I get a chemical peel?

The frequency of chemical peels depends on your skin type and goals. You can perform superficial peels more frequently, usually every 4–6 weeks. You should space out medium peels every 3–6 months, while you should usually do deep peels once a year or as needed due to their intensive nature.

Can I combine a chemical peel with other treatments?

Yes, you can enhance your results by combining chemical peels with other treatments like microneedling, Botox, and microdermabrasion. Combining treatments can address multiple skin concerns simultaneously and provide comprehensive rejuvenation. Your skincare professional can recommend the best combination for your skin.

What should I do to prepare for a chemical peel?

To prepare for a chemical peel, you should avoid sun exposure, tanning, and using certain skincare products like retinoids and exfoliants for at least a week before the treatment. It’s also important to follow any specific instructions provided during your consultation to ensure the best possible outcome.
